Halloween Costumes

I have been very busy crafting this week, just not with needle and thread.  I spent most my days making these two Lego men. Two of my sons and I saw something similar on the internet and they decided they really wanted to be Lego men for Halloween.  So I told them to bring me a couple of their Lego men and I would give it a try.  My daughter wanted to be a cave woman, and we threw her costume together in the hour before my husband's work Halloween party tonight.  I didn't even use thread for her costume, just tied it around her.  I really wanted to spend more time on hers, but those Lego men took way longer than I anticipated.  4 days of non stop work.  I didn't even clean house or make dinners.  My husband took care of the dinner part, but now I have a really messy house to take care over the weekend.  My youngest son's costume was store bought.  It is the first one I even remember buying as a mater of fact.  I was feeling really bad about that and the fact that I didn't get to make his, but when he said, "This is the best costume I ever had!" and really meant it, then I didn't feel so bad.  The kids all had a good time at the Halloween party and the Lego men sure did get a lot of attention and each Lego man won a $25 gift card for second place in the costume contest.  :)

Leah, those are awesome. If the boys won second place, then I can't even imagine how wonderful first place must've been. You are always so good with Halloween costumes. I wish you could make ours too.
